Thanks so much everyone for all the birthday wishes for Brittany.
She has been very spoiled all day.
Lots of hugs and kisses. Lots of yummy treats and presents.
We feel really blessed to have Brittany. She is such a sweet and loving girl.
She has had a heart murmur her entire life that has been closely monitored, but
she has thrived throughout the years.
When her best friend, Dixie (our boxer girl in heaven) had to have her lower jaw bone
removed when she was only three years old....Brittany constantly took care of Dixie.
Dixie could no longer lick her own face off when she ate...so Brittany cleaned her face for her
after every meal for the rest of Dixie's life. She snuggled up with Dixie every night to give her comfort.
She was very protective of Dixie.
When Dixie died two years ago at the age of 7 from Lymphoma...we didn't know
if Brittany would survive the loss. They had been together for 7 years and the loss was
extremely hard on Brittany. She mourned for her friend for months.
I still believe she misses her to this day.
Brittany watched from a window as we put Dixie in the car for that last difficult trip
to the Vet. Everyday since then....she spends a great deal of time sitting in front of that particular
window...just watching and waiting.
We love Brittany very much....she has been an amazing girl!
